denmarke

For those of you that are in Beirut those days, there is a very interesting event on 14 th april  at Hangar. Spotlight on stereotypes is organised by Umam a lebanese ngo which takes care of preserving the country history and memories through various activities, supported by artists, filmakers and many international organisations.

The focus this time will be on Danish Arab stereotypes and will feature the performance of famous Danish Egyptian comedian Omar Marzouk. Journalists from Denmark and from the Arab region will be attending the event, and also the Danish Ambassador in Lebanon will address a speech at the opening. Just to prove that Denmark is involved more than ever in trying to enhance communication and cultural exchanges with the Arab world, as previously noted here during Rasmussen‘s trip to Istanbul for the Alliance of civilizations summit.

The discussion will start at 7Pm and will be followed by live Dj music.
